I'm not proposing that we would/should change away from svn.  I'm just
trying to avoid making decisions that would hamstring us in the future
if we ever wanted/needed to...

>From my perspective, I'm only thinking about the issue of getting all
build recipies (GAR or otherwise) into the svn tree.  While I think
that the automated build system is a good idea and could be useful,
it's not something I'm pushing as a primary goal...I'll leave that for
those that have knowledge of such systems, etc.  I'd just like to
ensure we don't lose knowledge of how to build various things.

If you moved your code into svn, you could forgo the old repository,
no?  You'd be duplicating effort to maintain it in both...

[Not trying to push, just being hopeful.]
